Bloomberg Crypto Analyst Predicts Deep Dive for Bitcoin, Plus Ripple and XRP, Tron, Ethereum, Stellar, Bitcoin Cash: Crypto News Alert
From a new outlook on the price of Bitcoin to the rise of XRP, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
The senior market research analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence says Bitcoin remains on a bearish trajectory.
Mike McGlone says the price of BTC could drop all the way down to $1,500. According to McGlone, the slump “was sparked by the pump for the Bitcoin Cash hard fork. That pump that began a few weeks ago got the market a bit too offsides with speculative longs playing for the good-old days. But this is an enduring bear market.”
Ripple and XRP
After passing Ethereum to become the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Ripple and XRP fans are talking about XRP’s odds of “flippening” Bitcoin next.
Very obvious this will be our new crypto standard.

Of course, not everyone is on board.
$XRP will never replace $BTC because it doesn't offer the same value proposition. It's good for what it is (cheaper and faster SWIFT) and congrats to anyone who made money off it but it's not permissionless decentralized money without masters.

For XRP not to be a security, it will need to be a real utility offer. IF something is exchanged with expectations of profit, it is not a utility token.
XRP is a tradable good that is sold under the expectation of profit. That in itself makes it a security.
